A part of Mandapa’s signature activities, Volkswagen Vintage Tour is a must-try excursion for both couples and family. The tour is offered in two types: Hidden Jewel and Classic. The Hidden Jewel Volkswagen Vintage Tour takes approximately about six hours. Guests will discover the hidden jewel of Bali with the resort’s classic VW 181. The trip starts from Penglipuran Village, a beautiful highland village in the regency of Bangli in East Bali, best known for its well-preserved culture and village layout.

The trip continues to visit the most ancient temple in Bangli, Pura Kehen. It was built in the 11th century, known as the miniature of Besakih Temple, the Mother Temple in Bali. Kehen means household or a fire place which symbolizes Lord Brahma, the creator of the universe according to ancient Hindu philosophy. The last stop is the unspoiled Tukad Cepung Waterfall. The waterfall does not flow into a river, stream or jungle, but it flows gently down the 15-meter canyon. These locations are hand-selected for those who wish to go off the beaten path away from the crowds.

Meanwhile, the Classic Volkswagen Vintage Tour takes about four hours, where guests can enjoy an unwinding journey in a classic VW 181 convertible, driving along the incredibly beautiful countryside, passing the rice field of Ceking village, visiting Sebatu water temple and the historical Gunung Kawi. A lunch picnic pit-stop along the way completes the ultimate vintage experience. The classic tour is one of the guest favorites in Mandapa, and full-day tour is available upon request.
